Just think of this as bonus Weasley.
Yesterday I pieced together a backing for the Harry Potter quilt. Since most of my quilts have been small applique projects, when I have purchased fabric over the years, I have mostly bought small pieces. If I am going to make a back for anything crib-size or larger from my stash, I need to piece it. This is the back.
Next step, put the layers together. I usually do this on the floor of Weasley's hangout room, otherwise known as the computer room. First I lay down the backing, wrong side up, and secure it to the carpet with t-pins. Then I smooth the batting on top. Here's The Old Man, checking to see if there are any wrinkles.
Once Weasley gave me the go-ahead, I spread the quilt top over the batting, and basted the layers together with safety pins. T.his will hold the layers together for machine quilting in my old home sewing machine. No fancy long-arm machine here, unfortunately. Of course, the quilting can't start until Weasley OKs the basting.
Now, its off to the sewing machine. I have to do that part without Weasley's assistance. And if you are wondering, yes, my quilts get washed before heading off to new homes. Wouldn't want to trigger anyone's allergies.
See you tomorrow, with more Weasley.
